Ever wonder what the breaking point is on your stock turbo?

BOILING POINT: HOW MUCH POWER CAN MY STOCK TURBO HANDLE?

Well now you know.

Keep in mind that the power numbers stated are rear wheel numbers after all the parasitic loss from the driveline and not numbers at the crank/flywheel (or advertised numbers) which tend to be higher.

My Son hit 440hp on BD's Dyno with his 24V 98 with stock turbo. Ran the HE!! out of that truck! He also hit 12.78 @ 103 at SpokaneRaceway. 4wd reg cab truck. He would also race RICERS on I-5, guess he got a good turbo. Maybe running AMZ/OIL helped???

good oil but... negative

440 RWHP so around 550 at the crank, not bad but definitely not at the mechanical limits.

We pushed our 09 LMM to about 550hp to the wheels 650hp to the crank, with two years of drag racing. Best time was a 12.95 @ 102 mph with a race weight of 7400lbs.

I was being a bit sarcastic about the oil. No not at the limits of the engine but I have never heard of anyone running that power drag racing and freeway racing on a stock turbo for as long as he did.
